This article summarizes the work that the Innovation Group E4 (Exploración de Enseñanzas en Estructuras de Edificación) is currently developing at the School of Architecture of Madrid (ETSAM). Professors of that Group are continuously improving methods involving the Information and Communication Technologies in the teaching of building structures. In this moment, a project about the use of “drag and drop” questions is being developed in order to introduce the game based learning and serious games in the process of learning how to draw structures diagrams.

At present, three questionnaires have been developed and they are in use in the subject Structures 1. Each questionnaire includes 385 drag and drop questions. It is programmed to continue performing questionnaires to apply them in both, Structures 1 and Structures 2 subjects.

The first impressions of the students are satisfactory and the time and duration expended to perform the exercises that are recorded in Moodle prove the continuous practice of students with this new type of questions. It is important to emphasize that students refer to the questionnaires as “the game” and, for the moment, they practice continuously and highly motivated.

This article presents the work carried out so far, the methodology currently used and the first feelings of the students. With the experience achieved so far we can say that the questionnaires presented in this work have been welcomed by the students of the School of Architecture of Madrid, as they practice continuously using them and they are greatly interested in them.
